#52, Could he help coach the D while Pees is in the booth?

13 posts in this topic

You see back up QB's holding clipboards all the time. Yet we are blessed with a General who has seen every offense the NFL has to offer, has been calling plays on the field forever, and studies more game film and offensive tendencies than any other human in the game.
How many coordinators has Mr Lewis help promote to HC?

I know he is an inspiration to the players, always has encouraging words and can motivate anyone he speaks to.

While he is down a few weeks with injuries, why not have him help coach?

IMO.... I would want him with a headset on with Pees upstairs in constant communication after every play in case he is sniffing out something on the sidelines that may be missed. His eyes and points of view would be priceless at this time of the retooling of our Defense. Thoughts?

Would he really be able to do that? Technically the players are union and visibly doing a coaching job would probably go against any NLFPA rules. I can see him standing next to Pees on the field, making side line comments, but to put headphones on and look like a coach could be a bit too obvious.

When the Jets were on Hard Knocks they gave the headset to Sanchez for a series and let him call the plays

Can't get more obvious then that

There is a misconception about Lewis. His a field general. Not a defensive coordinator, or assistant coordinator, or even a personnel trainer.

He is a player on field, he helps the players around him. I dont think putting Lewis sitting next to Dean is going to make our defense that much better.

I always wondered if after he retires would he come back and be our D's coach.

Ray Lewis has already said no to coaching after retirement.

He wants to be with his family and he's already set up his life after football. He's stated several times that his purpose in retiring is to be completely done with football because then he'll know that he's given the game everything he's got.

Ed Reed, on the other hand, has said he'd heavily consider coaching after retirement.
